Doing Triadic Philosophy

The aim of Triadic Philosophy is to do it
This means being aware that all signs words and thoughts
rise from Reality
the vast realm which we can never fully know or understand
Only when we are considering what rises 
are we engaged in the Triadic process
The first stop for the idea sign or word
is Ethics where
Tolerance Helpfulness Democracy
and Non-idolatry
register their power
The Aesthetic is the realm where the premium
is on achieving truth and beauty
aka grace
aka what Neitzsche named amor fati
or loving your life
It is where whatever you were considering
and submitting to the challenge of the ethical
becomes a conception on which you act
The act is always an experiment
and out of the experience you either are creating a habit
or signaling a need for further thought

Quite literally almost all the key words
in Triadic Philosophy
are useful as silent mantras
as we move from a notion
to setting it in an ethical context
to settling on an action or hypothesis or experiment
which we mean to be positive
to advance things 
to make for mindful existence

Triadic Philosophy can, I believe,
be defended as an evolution of philosophy
and more specifically as a salient emendation
of what Charles Sanders Peirce aimed at in pragmaticism

"Sto Perigiali" One of the Surpassingly Best Tunes Theodorakis Has Written

A Setting for a Poem "Denial" Beloved by the Greek People by the Nobel Prize Winning Poet Giorgos Seferis
The remarkable video at the link above is of a performance of "Sto perigiali" Mario Frangoulis and Mikis Theodorakis in 2001.

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …

Obama Ads Should Be Grass Roots Cinema Verite

ShortFormContent at Blogger: How President Obama Can Win Christian Conservatives:

'via Blog this'

To counter the invidious efforts of Karl Rove and the Brothers Koch, simple videos of everyday people expressing gratitude for specific results from specific things that the President has achieved will create a signature response that will turn the tables on the Super PACs.

There could be an intro that flags lies distortions and anonymous attacks as unreal and even criminal and a cut to what is real, recognizable and not anonymous I am (name). I have lived here in (name) for (time). Thanks to (President Obama's (name) Act ... and so forth for ten seconds. Close with a continuation of the story narrated over evocative images and simple acoustic music.

This would be a fantastic way to counter the attacks on the President. For every specific attack, a video that shows the truth. And grass roots people who intend to vote for the President.
